The Protist Ribosomal Reference database (PR2): a catalog of unicellular eukaryote Small Sub-Unit rRNA sequences with curated taxonomy
TLDR
The presence of both rRNA and rDNA sequences, taking into account introns (crucial for eukaryotic sequences), a normalized eight terms ranked-taxonomy and updates of new GenBank releases were made possible by a long-term collaboration between experts in taxonomy and computer scientists.
DIVERSITY IN THE GENUS SKELETONEMA (BACILLARIOPHYCEAE). II. AN ASSESSMENT OF THE TAXONOMY OF S. COSTATUM‐LIKE SPECIES WITH THE DESCRIPTION OF FOUR NEW SPECIES 1
TLDR
The morphology of strains of Skeletonema Greville emend Sarno et Zingone was examined in LM, TEM, and SEM and compared with sequence data from nuclear small sub unit rDNA and partial large subunit rDNA, challenging the concept of S. costatum as a single cosmopolitan and opportunistic species.
Patterns of Rare and Abundant Marine Microbial Eukaryotes
Intraspecific diversity in Scrippsiella trochoidea (Dinopbyceae): evidence for cryptic species
TLDR
The grouping of haplotypes in a series of distinct clades suggests the existence of cryptic species within what has previously been considered a single species, based on the morphological features of the motile cells and cysts.
MOLECULAR PHYLOGENY OF THE GENUS CAULERPA (CAULERPALES, CHLOROPHYTA) INFERRED FROM CHLOROPLAST tufA GENE1
TLDR
A molecular phylogeny was inferred from chloroplast tufA sequences of 23 taxa of Caulerpa to better understand the evolutionary history of the genus, finding high bootstrap values support monophyly of C. mexicana, C. sertularioides, and C. prolifera, whereas most other C Faulerpa species show para‐ or polyphyly.
Marine protist diversity in European coastal waters and sediments as revealed by high-throughput sequencing.
TLDR
This extensive and systematic sequencing of geographically separated sites provides the most comprehensive molecular description of coastal marine protist diversity to date.
Phylogeography of the invasive seaweed Asparagopsis (Bonnemaisoniales, Rhodophyta) reveals cryptic diversity
TLDR
Phylogeographic results suggest separation of Atlantic and Indo‐Pacific lineages resulted from the emergence of the Isthmus of Panama, as well as from dispersal events postdating the closure event, such as the invasion of the Mediterranean Sea by mitochondrial lineages 2 and 3.
